Kerry heads to Middle East, Gaza death toll past 500

CAIRO (AP) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (bahn kee-moon) and Secretary of State John Kerry will arrive in Cairo today for the highest-level attempt yet to end two weeks of Israel-Hamas fighting.

More than 500 Palestinians and 20 Israelis have been killed, and the fighting has driven tens of thousands of Gaza residents from their homes.

The U.N. Security Council emerged from an emergency session late last night with a proposed resolution much weaker than a proposal from Jordan that called for Israel to pull out of Gaza.
